At the beginning of The Weekend Starts Now podcast, host James Norton has been calling MPLS + STPL “The cities too cool to talk about how cool they are”. Actually, they’re the cities that can’t get enough of tribute bands. One of the better line-ups of tributes takes place tonight at the Turf Club with Trompe le Monde (The Pixies), Lithium (Nirvana), Dramones (Ramones), and Guerrilla Radio (Rage Against the Machine). Friday, 8 PM. $10. —Joan Richardson
